Australia Day flight sales 2018

Looking for a reason to escape or to explore your own backyard? Find the best fares from the Australia Day flight sales right here.

What better time is there to think about exploring the country (or escaping from it) than around Australia Day. It falls on a Friday this year, so maximising your annual leave by taking no time off for a three-day weekend or take the Thursday or Monday off will give you a four-day weekend to play with, or you can bag a bargain on later travels.

Even if you can't get away this weekend, there's plenty of domestic flights on sale. Airlines like Jetstar and Tigerair often host domestic flight sales around Australia Day. International carriers are also joining in on the fun, with the likes of Etihad and Qatar also offering sales.
